Chemo Cargo's Sixth Annual Golf Play Day was a great way to end the summer! Although overcast, the temperature was great. The event raised approximately $4,000, which will provide about 125 totes to chemo patients in the stateline.
Huge thanks go out to our sponsors! Where and when you're able, please support these companies and individuals that support Chemo Cargo.

Because of the way we distribute totes through hospitals instead of directly to patients, we don't receive a lot of feedback. When we do, it's normally positive and makes our day! Here are a few comments we've received lately:
"I love the chemo bag, I take it with me every day to chemo. I like that it has a pocket for my water bottle and I also like the soft blanket. Thanks!"
"Very thoughtful, appreciated, and unexpected. Thanks!"
"Thanks so much for this wonderful program! God Bless You."
"Nice, sturdy bag!"
"This is a very nice gift. Thank you!"
"Your tote was a very nice idea. Having gone through it 11 years ago, I had some idea what to expect, but it is a nice gesture on your part! Thank you."
"Thanks so much for your caring and your generosity."
"All were perfect. Thank you so much!"
At the end of March, Chemo Cargo held our 2nd Moonlight Bowl Fundraiser. Hosted by Park Lanes in Loves Park, the event raised almost $2,300.
A huge thank you to all of our Bowlers, Sponsors, and Donors. A special thanks to Park Lanes for all their help. Please consider doing business with these generous people if you have the chance!

Chemo Cargo is thrilled to partner with Beloit Health System's Cancer Center. We delivered our first batch of bags andOur toured the brand new, $11.6 million facility at the end of January. In collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, the Beloit cancer team now brings their state of the art services and equipment under one roof. Board members were particularly impressed by all the small touches designed for patient comfort, including a walking path that can be used during infusion.
